“Dear Rosie, Being an apprentice fairy godmother is complicated. Not only do I have to go out and find good deeds to do, but for a sidekick I have that hit man that Felicity changed into a toad. I wanted to take the cat but she seems to have had a big funeral to attend. Felicity isn’t around much. She keeps disappearing through a door in the guestroom that opens on the side of a hill. The swimming pool is weird too, and I could have sworn I saw someone dancing on the bottom. I am enjoying riding the flying horse and helping a boy who plays squeezebox and talks to swans though, so things are--you should pardon the expression--looking up.”

This is the sequel to The Godmother. Her Godmother series is much darker than Mercedes Lackey's Godmother series. Very good read. Characters are well written. Grimness is balanced with humour. If you like Lackey's books try these.

I didn't like this one as much as The Godmother, however I'd recommend it nonetheless. It's less traditional fairy tale and more Irish myths, but it gets points for the King of Cats bit.

Scarborough 's sequel returns to the world of the Godmother, but not to Seattle. Instead, Sno and Felicity are off to Ireland to recharge Felicity's magic and start Sno along the path to becoming a fairy godmother herself. The story itself plays out as written by Sno in her journal and in emails to her father and to Rose, the social worker who was the main focus of the Godmother. (Rose, unfortunately, does not make an appearance here.) Scarborough continues the adapted fairy tale theme here, pulling heavily from Irish mythology along with Grimm's Fairy Tales. If you enjoyed the Godmoth, chances are this one will suit you, as well.
